Good Day Friends …
I am not a morning person at ALLLLLL. Mornings are so hard for me; no matter what time I wake up or go to bed. Sometimes the attitude I wake up with can effect the type of day I have. And that’s not good. So to help me through the days of the horrible work week, I have identified three things that will helps me, own my day. I have found that the only way to get through each and every day is if you take control. You have to own it… for yourself, so that everyone else knows. Here’s three ways to own your day.
First and foremost, you’ll need a clear state of mind.
Each and every morning I wake up; I have to clear my head. I push out all the negative emotions of not wanting to do whatever it is I don’t want to do. I talk to myself. No, I’m not crazy and I don’t answer myself. But I simply coach myself through my day ahead. As I go through my morning routine I speak positivity over my day, I pray, and I prepare myself for the things I have to get done in that day. Before I get in my car and head to work or wherever the day leads me, I am mentally prepared.
Secondly you’ll need a Positive Attitude and Open Mind.
A smile will take you a long way and you never know who it will help. I know it can be hard to do all the time but smiling and being pleasant to others brings happiness to my day when it appreciated. As adventurous as I like to think I am, sometimes I can be close minded about things I’m unfamiliar with. So with a positive attitude I have an open mind to try new things and experience something new each and every day.
Lastly, you’ll need to develop a working but realistic To Do List.
I know you all know the feeling of having so much to do and so little time. To make sure I stay in control of my day, I develop a to do list in my phone. Starting the the morning I list everything I can think of that I should do in that day. I try to keep it realistic, because I don’t want to end my day with only 10 of 50 things completed. The goal is to complete everything on my to do list per day. And it really helps you see just how you can own your day by the small thing you accomplish throughout the day. If I know I have this, that and the third to accomplish by the end of the day. I am going to work towards completing one thing at a time so I may move on to the next. The feeling of seeing every thing crossed off my list at the end of the day makes me feel in control.
I own the day and you can too.
